Hi Thomas, thanks for packaging diskimage-builder. As you probably know,
I am one of the core developers on the parent project, OpenStack On
It is not really a python program. It has a small python component,
and it uses python tools for building, but that is just to conform with
OpenStack. The bulk of the code is bash.
So, I recommend just calling it diskimage-builder.
